A ketogenic diet is a diet that in the absence of glycogen (sugar and carbohydrates, which convert to sugar), the body burns fat it has in reserves. It's a metabolic fat burning state and you don't have to buy anything you normally wouldn't. You just don't buy carbs (bread, pasta, etc). And then I fast 18 hours daily. I'm really not hungry during that time. A ketogenic diet also eliminates inflammation on ghe cellular level so it has helped push my autoimmune illness into remission. I also have an underactive thyroid, so it's really hard for me to lose (due to being on Lithium in the past, it damaged my Thyroid)

Basically no/little carbs to LOTS of protein ...That's the diet I also follow but I have also had gastric bypass but please believe it's NOT easy but well worth it I also take Lamotrigine and Prozac good luck to you I know it's hard
I too had huge weight gain from serequel and now am on lamotrogine. Have managed to lose about half of what I put on. Have also started swimming again. Hoping I can lose what I put on and then some more . Goodluck
